    Picture of catPima Animal Care Center assisted with the removal of 21 cats from a home located near Elm Street and Stone Avenue Feb. 26. Animal Protection Officers responded to a call to assist a Tucson police officer. 

    The cats were all two years or younger with the youngest at two months old. Officials said the cats were in overall good condition, but all were dehydrated and have upper respiratory infections. A few are in the Pima Animal Care Center clinic to be treated. All will be available for adoption. Find details on PACC's Adopt a Pet page.

    This case is still under investigation. People in need of help with the number of animals in their home can call (520) 724-5900 and then hit the star (*) button. 

    Currently there are already 93 other cats and kittens at the shelter, along with 369 dogs and puppies.  All pets adopted will come spayed or neutered, with age-appropriate vaccinations, a microchip and a free vet visit. A $19 licensing fee will apply to dogs. PACC is located at 4000 N. Silverbell Rd, open Monday through Friday, noon-7 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekends.
